But it didnâ€™t quite snow. You know, that kinda sorta maybe you saw the occasional snowflake mixed in the rain but you canâ€™t really be sure without stepping outside and itâ€™s just too crappy out to actually do that sort of look. Started up the Wx App and it had the overlay for snow just off my location extending South. Ah well. You know youâ€™ve lived somewhere it rains way too much when youâ€™d rather have snow.
Yesterday was our 29th Anniversary but we didnâ€™t go out an do anything special since SWMBO doesnâ€™t like to do anything that makes someone else work on Sunday. So we just celebrated at home. She made some kind of Shrimp stuff for dinner. And Orange Jell-O! What a woman!
The MCARC Sunday evening 2-meter Chat Net went well yesterday, but, we had only 4 of us check in. I think everyone that usually check in might have been out trying to get their last minute Christmas shopping done; or off to visit family.
Speaking of radio stuff: That JT-6188 I bought really sucks. Got a bunch of repeaters stored into memory, and it seems to scan, but it will not break the squelch when it encounters a signal. Nor will it continue to scan no matter which setting itâ€™s on in the settings menu. Had it working once just right; but added a frequency or something cause it hasnâ€™t worked since. I was really hoping this thing wouldnâ€™t be any freakier than the Boefeng/wouxun radioâ€™s; but it is. Ah well. Live and play with things and learn. So I probably have a $100 boat anchor. Iâ€™ll probably keep playing with it though.
Didnâ€™t really do much of anything beyond my usual chores today. Think Iâ€™m coming down with a cold or something cause I just didnâ€™t feel like getting off my ass. Took a couple of micro-naps too. Tired all the time. Which could be a combination of my advancing age and Winter Weather (RAIN all the damned time) cause I do have that Seasonal Disorder Thingie (SIDS?). Iâ€™m just not like suicidal about it.
Got home from picking SWMBO up at the Ferry Landing and we sat and watched the last â€œIce Ageâ€ movie. It be past my bedtime now so Iâ€™m gonna hit the rack.
Ainâ€™t I exciting!
